Russia and Japan still have some disagreements on a bilateral peace treaty, but it is necessary to continue searching for a solution during future talks, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said Monday
Earlier in the day, Kono held talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
"There are some issues on which we have different views, but it is necessary for the both sides to search for common ground during future talks," Kono told reporters.
The minister said that he could not disclose details of Monday's ministerial talks on the peace treaty, noting, however, that the sides exchanged their views and held earnest discussions.
